La Thuile is a great option for slopes for all sorts, but especially brilliant for beginners. The north-facing runs mean first-class snow conditions and the peaceful slopes are fab for families too. Plus, you’re perfectly placed to hit the hills over the French border in La Rosiere.
A tale of two towns
Here, you’ll find remnants of an old mining town mixed with a modern, lift-based ski resort that offers quick and easy access to the snow. On top of that, there’s a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants to keep you entertained when you’re taking a break from the snow.
February 2016 saw the resort host three competitions for the Alpine Skiing World Cup, including two ladies’ downhill races and one Super G. For more advanced skiers who want to test their skills too, there are opportunities to try to some terrific black runs and off-piste terrain.
